After much deliberations with all the stake holders from industry bodies like IESA, SFAL, industry veterans and KDEM, IIIT-B has designed a program that is a combination of academic rigour and application focus.

Structure & Duration of the Program:

K-VLSI is an Advanced Certificate Program in VLSI design for 6 months with focus on theoretical and practical knowledge with extensive exposure to industry relevant projects and 3 months’ internship with the Industry. The theoretical input will be full-time classroom sessions by IIIT-B faculty and the practical knowledge with hands on tools will be delivered by IIIT-B’s training partner Futurewiz . Some of the important elements of VLSI including System design, system verification and embedded systems will be covered in the course. Engineering graduates with electrical, electronics and computer science disciplines are eligible to apply.

Prof. Madhav Rao, IIIT-Bangalore who is spearheading the course says, “We felt the need to start to this programme as there is a dearth of manpower in semiconductor companies. Through this course, we aim to make students semi-conductor designing industry ready.”
